Custom Dashboards


Dashboards is a Harness Platform Feature, that allows you to visualize key metrics and data related to your module. You can customize the dashboards to show specific metrics and data relevant to your needs, and access them from a central location. The Harness Dashboards provide actionable insights out of your IDP, so you can enable good developer experience in your org. Dashboards also allow you to setup scheduled delivery of reporting and alerts for your executives and stakeholders.

  • You can create custom dashboards at the account scope only.
  • Make sure you have the Manage permissions for Dashboards to create, edit, and delete custom dashboards.
  • Make sure you have the View permissions for Dashboards to view the custom dashboards.

To view and access dashboards, select DASHBOARDS from the left navigation in your Harness account. You can filter the data on the dashboards for IDP module by selecting the module name from the top of the page.
